Gary Megson is backing former club West Bromwich Albion is beat the drop this season.

The ex-Baggies boss achieved promotion to the Premier League twice in his four-year spell but was unable to prevent relegation in 2003.

Megson told the Daily Star: “It’s been a difficult few years for West Brom, but I think they can definitely stay up.

“They have a much stronger squad than they’ve ever had in the Premier League and should have enough to avoid relegation. The manager has made some astute signings in Peter Odemwingie and Paul Scharner.”
